Our waiteress Nicole was very knowledgeable on all menu items and brought refills on drinks without being asked. The kitchen manager stopped by the table to check on us. This is first time, I saw a manager constantly serving dinners. Our only complaint was that the brushetta should be served with more toasts because it was so yummy!

It was nice to dine on a quiet Saturday as I know this place can be noisy and busy. I found both the dipping sauce for the bread and the salad dressing to be too spicy (garlic and pepper) for me. However, the entrees were excellent. I had the Mahi with artichokes, which was delicious. Others had chicken and veal... More

Wanted to try Carrabba's for some time now, but there are none locally to me. Finally found one during a business trip and stopped in for a late dinner. I have to say that I was underwhelmed at best. The place was during a brisk business and was clean and inviting, but we all found the food to be very... More

Stopped by at closing time. The staff treated me like they had just opened for service and did not make me feel rushed by any means.

I have a tendency to keep picking the same entree if I like it. I always get the salmon. The mashed potatoes are REALLY good here - as well as the fresh bread. If you don't want oil to dip the bread in, you can ask for regular butter. Reservations would be nice for supper, since the place is always... More

We really enjoy Carrabba's. Definitely one of the better chain restaurants. We enjoy almost everything on their menu. The steak Marsala is my favorite. This is a flavor overload. My wife enjoys the more traditional Italian meals and the catch of the day. The waits are reasonable and the curbside pickup is awesome.

We went for dinner after receiving a gift card. We visited at 5:30 pm on a Friday and were seated within 10 minutes. Our table was against a wall next to the open kitchen. It was painfully loud and hard to hold a conversation, particularly with the serving staff leaning against/over top the wall while waiting for food to be... More

While I ordered Shrimp & Scallop Linguine Alla Vodka my young daughter ordered the childrens spaghetti and meat ball .... I looked at hers, then I looked at mine..... besides the 3 little shrimp and 3 tiny scallops the size of a pencil eraser, I couldn't tell the difference. The sauce looked and tasted identical. When I mentioned this to... More
